Live Action Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Washington, D.C. – Pro-life advocacy group Live Action made the following statement on the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of Ruth Bader Ginsburg who has passed away after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. May her loved ones experience consolation and peace as they mourn the loss of a beloved grandmother, mother, wife, colleague, and friend.”
Live Action founder and president, Lila Rose, addressed the vacancy saying:
“The Supreme Court must once again rise to the occasion and reckon with its own sins against human rights. Like Dredd Scott, Plessy v. Ferguson, and Korematsu, Roe v. Wade casts a dark shadow on America’s justice system, which enshrines equal protection under the law for all people. It is time for the Court to uphold the rights and dignity of preborn children guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution. Because when the right to life is disregarded, all other constitutional rights fall prey to the abuses of arbitrary power and tyranny. This is why our Founding Fathers placed “life” first among all human rights in the Declaration of Independence.
As our President and Senate now look to the great responsibility of swiftly confirming a new justice, we the people must insist the Supreme Court uphold the principle of equal protection under the law guaranteed by the 14th Amendment, which declares that no person shall be deprived of life without due process. For nearly 50 years, the Supreme Court has twisted the U.S. Constitution to permit the lawless killing of 60 million children in the womb.
Every day in our nation, 2,363 children with a beautiful future ahead are poisoned, dismembered, and suctioned to death by abortion. This is the greatest injustice of our day. It is time to end the bloodshed. We urge President Trump to ensure the next Supreme Court justice acknowledges that all human beings have the right to life – no matter their race, sex, age, size, or dependency status.”
